Fav Quote Friday: The Beauty Of Generosity

by - 8:50 AM


"It was our belief that the love of possessions
is a weakness to be overcome.
Its appeal is to the material part,
and if allowed its way,
it will, in time, disturb one's spiritual balance.
Therefore, children must early learn
the beauty of generosity.
They are taught to give what they prize most,
that they may taste the happiness of giving."

~Ohíye S’a, Author, Acitvist
